T's Pond

2 sites · Lodging29 acres · Port Colborne, ON
Like most folks who’ve been bitten by the water ski bug, I dreamed of having my own lake and when I met my life partner Harald, an elite slalom skier, my search began in earnest. By a combination of good timing and good luck, I was able to make that dream come true and in the spring of 2014 I acquired this land with the hopes of building my dream water ski lake on it. 7 years later, we have a thriving water ski club and are constantly making improvements to the site. We now have decided to add some sites for rent to share this incredible property with others outside the water ski community. Site #1 is a small cabin that sleeps 3 and site #2 is a small houseboat that has been converted to a bunkie. Onsite activities include use of a canoe and paddleboard. Use of a kid's swingset and olympic trampoline. Swimming and fishing. Pets are welcome, campfires are permitted.

Laurenwood Farm

7 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents100 acres · Loretto, ON
Welcome to Laurenwood Farm! New for 2024: Due to health reasons the farm is fallow this season. It is still a quiet, peaceful escape to the country and you can enjoy all of the amenities but there will be no veggie boxes this season and there are fewer animals to visit. We do have some items available such as honey and syrup. The farm is a 100-acre working livestock and organic mixed produce farm with picturesque views, miles of wooded trails, and a beautiful little fish pond. Fresh organic veggies and farm-fresh eggs are available seasonally. Guests are welcome to wander the trails, check out the pond and gardens, and have a guided tour to experience meeting the animals. Nearby are several conservation areas and access to the Bruce Trail. Walking, biking or horseback riding is very pleasant on the quiet country roads around. There are many local fairs and festivals in the surrounding villages, such as the Beeton Honey Festival and Tottenham Bluegrass Festival. We have three different listings, a cottage, a barn loft, and a tent/RV site. We look forward to hosting you!

Next to Mono Cliffs Provincial Park

1 site · RV, Tent10 acres · Mono, ON
This is a very private little slice of heaven that I've been pleased to steward for over 20 years. If you love the sound of frogs singing, and bullfrogs plucking their banjo strings, red-winged blackbirds trilling, you will love it here. The property is literally right across the road from the Mono Cliffs Provincial Park which boasts amazing trails, views and features the Niagara Escarpment. The 4-acre pond/wetland is designated 'Provincially Significant' by the Ministry of Natural Resources and is an important part of the Nottawasaga Watershed. This area is renowned for its terrain - the fields are rolling and the views are quite special. You will enjoy a private firepit and private overlook at the pond with hammock. The site isn't visible from the road. Our house is visible from the site but far enough away as to not disturb one another. We have a newly added outhouse with lighting that will make your stay comfortable.

Camping near Markham guide

Overview

Markham was once a quaint town and bedroom community but has recently developed into a business and industrial centre in its own right. You’ll need to head out of town to find campgrounds, but there are plenty of natural areas to explore nearby, including hiking trails, lakes, and parts of Ontario’s protected Greenbelt.

Where to go

Rouge Valley

The Rouge River winds through the suburban landscape just east of Markham and makes its way down to Lake Ontario. A large area has been designated as Rouge National Urban Park, which is free to enter (unlike other national parks) and has lots of hiking trails and forest to explore. The park contains Toronto’s only public campground, the Glen Rouge Campground near Highway 401. The park also borders the Toronto Zoo, which makes the campground a great place for a family stay. 

Musselman Lake

There are several camping options north of Markham if you drive up Highway 48. Here you’ll find lakefront parks with RV and tent camping, plus some with family amenities like kayak rentals, pools, and tennis courts. 

East Gwillimbury

Further up Highway 48 you’ll find more campgrounds and glamping sites offering tent camping, cabins, and more. 

When to go

Most of the campgrounds near Markham are seasonal and operate between May and September. Some may stay open until early October (Canadian Thanksgiving weekend). Going in May or early June will help you steer clear of the summer crowds. Plus, there are no black flies to contend with this far south.

Know before you go

  • Markham is home to a lot of large workplaces, so rush hour traffic can be awful. Avoid arriving or leaving between 8am and 10am or between 4pm and 6pm.
  • Many conservation areas near Markham have walking trails, and some feature beaches. None of the nearby conservation areas allow camping, but they are still worth a visit.
  • The Markham Fair—an annual event that is held the weekend before Thanksgiving (early October)—is one of the biggest agricultural fairs in Canada. Timing your trip to experience the fair is well worth it.
  • The Oak Ridges Trail is a multi-purpose trail over 160 kilometres long, which passes through Richmond Hill, north of Markham. The main trail and side trails offer lots of hiking and cycling options as well as snowshoeing and cross-country skiing when conditions are right.
